A lot of people are considering a tummy tuck to lose the excess fat, the plastic surgery is quite safe, and everyone can have it until you are planning to get pregnant in the future, you must wait for the next delivery and then it’s to you whether to do it or not. The cosmetic surgery requires incisions around the abdominal area and cuts fats and tissues during the operation under general anesthesia. The tummy tuck surgery is a revolutionary cosmetic procedure to look perfect even n old age with no excess tummy fat hanging around.
Why Lose Tummy?
There is more reason than that can be explained to lose tummy, ask the ones with bellies. Both for men and women, it is an utter embarrassment having an unwanted stomach fat, it looks terrible, the clothes won’t fit, people make fun of it, and it shatters the self-confidence. Aging may be one of the reasons of fat tummy; some people have heredity problems. Tummy tuck operation does the following:
- It tightens the tummy muscles; there’s no more tummy after the operation
- For women, it’s a perfect bikini body after surgery
- With tummy gone, you will look hotter and handsome
- It increases self-confidence
How’s it Performed?
The process is simple and effective; there aren’t any major complications reported during the surgical procedure so far. There are two types of abdominoplasty, the complete abdominoplasty, and partial abdominoplasty. Both require different period and expertise to execute. The former one requires a complete incision of the abdominal region from hip to hip and may need special care after the surgery; the surgical process requires 4-5 hours for full abdominoplasty or tummy tuck operation. The mini abdominoplasty is simpler than the full operation and is performed on the fat deposits below the navel region; the completion time is two to three hours for a mini abdominoplasty.
If more accurate and desired results are required, tummy tuck operation can also be integrated with the liposuction to nullify the fat effect from your body completely. If you are seriously looking to shed some weight and look smarter in every aspect, the combined operation could be an ideal choice if approved by the surgeon. In both the cases, the patients need to stay in the hospital for at least three days or up to a week until recovery.
